New mod: Color matched clear corners and more

Okay so I had my old clear corners with the white housing sitting around. I also just recently got some of the sonicblue spray paint. So I decided to color match them. However I ended up cracking/breaking part of one CC, but was able to glue the broke piece back on. It looks good from 5+ft away, but up close not so pretty lol. Anyway this was my tester to see how i'd do and if i'd feel comfortable enough to do the headlights. Maybe once i'm driving the probe, but untill then they aren't being touched. Anyway let me know what you think of it.

Primer:


Painted/drying:


Throttle body cover painted/reinstalled:


Black housing clear corner:


Painted white housing clear corner:


Same thing at slightly different angles:



Side shot:


Shot from a little farther away:


I'm kinda half and half on it so let me know what you think.

Should light up fine. It's still light outside, but I left some chrome so it would have something to reflect off of. So I doubt I will lose much if any lighting that I had previously.

Edit:

It was dark enough to grab a decent pic. I lost a little bit of lighting, but not much.

Re: New mod: Color matched clear corners and more

nice, it looks good man, may i recomend if you have a 2nd headlight or grab 1 at a junk yard for a few bucks, paint the housing blue then pop it on the truck just to see how much light you'll put out...just incase when you do the headlights its not what you had hoped you'd still have your good set.

I rarely ever clean the engine bay lol i'm lazy. I've gotten to the point I dont care about water spots lol doesn't really show up that bad though. However once it gets warmer out in about a month or so i'm going to do a good detailed cleaning of the whole truck, pull out my interior parts I painted and respray them in sonicblue. I'm hoping also to some point land me the leather buckets offered in the ranger. Another thing i'd like to do, but would be a long time down the line is dye the interior black.

I think i've seen a few on cardomain do it, but it was mostly the piping for a supercharger or simular things.
